My 2012 Range rover sport tailgate will only open approx 90%. When i push it up by hand all the way i notice it can go up atleast another 1.25". At the same time it will only close with the button on the tailgate and will not close with the remote.

Why not read the manual? I guarantee the answers are in there.

My guess would be the gate cartridges holding the gate may be wearing out...and have lost their pressure to lift the gate.

My guess is that someone set the opening at a lower level, as I did for my shorter wife: to wit, read post #2, it's in the manual. So is the the fact the gate doesn't close on remote.

I guess I'm stuck in manual tailgate mode then...much easier to diagnose than the remote/automated/kick foot underneath to make it open and close...

Nowhere in the manual does it show an adjustable height for the tailgate. I searched everywhere
If I go out and take a picture of the page will you PayPal me 100 dollars?

Admittedly, my unit is a 2013. But in my manual on page 12. See, I just saved you $100.

I'll definitely try that when I get home from work. I find it hard to believe that after only 4 years the struts need replacing. I hope it works

Your trying to close the tailgate with the key fob? I don't think that's possible. If I don't recall, I think I've seen somewhere that it can only be closed by using the close button on the tailgate.
